City Gate provides a safe, comfortable and non judgmental setting where I am able to discuss my Sexual Addiction. Carol provides the tools, the guidance and the support I need to continue on my journey toward recovery - G N.
Carol’s compassionate and caring style
makes one feel comfortable and willing to open
up on these so very difficult and complex issues.
My husband’s long-term addiction to
pornography nearly destroyed our marriage. While he was clearly still in denial and I was . . .
continued next slide . .
exhibiting co-dependent behaviors, I sought the
help of a counselor specializing in addictions.
We are now in individual and couples recovery
and have begun to transform a nearly dead
marriage to one that is better than we could
have imagined, thanks to Carol and City
